Noah and "84 Paws, A Life With Old Labs" book.

Barks! I received no compensation, treats, dog food, or toys to share my opinion about this book. Just a copy to read!

Barks, if there is one thing that I have learned in my short life as a dog, it is that we dogs -- whether young or old, small or extra large -- make a pawsome grand difference in the lives of humans! We help humans exercise and lower their blood pressure. Statistics and studies indicate that caring for a dog can prolong a human’s life. WOOF! Barks.

Senior dogs are often great dogs for a family who has never had a dog before like a senior human who would enjoy the companionship of a like-minded friend, or those who would like to avoid having a puppy with its high energy level and playfulness! Paws, there are humans who love the love that senior dogs can provide. Barkingly, often they are house- and crate-trained and just looking for a place to relax in their senior years!

“84 Paws, A Life With Old Labs”

A pawsome and pawnderfull read about the blessings of senior dogs is “84 Paws, A Life with Old Labs,” by Barbara Osgood. In her book, she shares frankly about her life struggles with losing family members, having a bipolar disorder, completing an education, achieving a respected place in the workplace, as well as plunging into darkness. She outlines a life’s journey of survival and overcoming challenges.

WOOF! The reader is introduced to a cast of pawsome senior Labrador retrievers who come into her life. Barkingly, as I read the book, I couldn’t help but think how these pawsome dogs who came along at the right time in a human’s life, encouraging and loving when she needed it most. We dogs do that! WOOF!
